I was completely embarrassed by the Wee Lass today.
This morning, Sophie and I attended Preschool Pick-up as usual. Preschool Teacher told Mom that one of the students had brought in his new Puppy today, for Sharing Time. Perish the thought that Mom would ever allow Sophie or Me, Pennie to be the object of "Sharing Time." Mom values our eyes, ears, tails and other body parts far too much than to subject us to the whims of a group of young heathens.
Anyhoodles, many of the Preschool Students were Scared of the Puppy. (No doubt the Puppy was the one in mortal danger.) One particularly un-manly little boy apparently even cried. Picking up on the reaction of some of the GIRLS in her class, Wee Lass fell to peer pressure and acted: Scared. Yes, Preschool Teacher told Mom that Wee Lass acted SCARED of the Puppy.
I was appalled. The first word that Wee Lass uttered was: "Mo." Mulligan's Name. Wee Lass' love of dogs has always bordered on obsession. This past year, when Oldest Lad was fostering dogs, Wee Lass went through Rent-to-Own Sophie, Jori, Karo, Lil' Dude, and Camille. Plus one other dog whose name I forget.
A Pennie Dog's work is never done, for obviously Wee Lass is one to succumb to Peer Pressure. I shall have to become Just-Say-No Pennie or undoubtedly Wee Lass will soon be falling to the Peer Pressure of drugs, alcohol and cigarettes.

Grrl, you've got your work cut out for you.
Hmm, maybe you and Sophie Should go to the little delinquents' preschool and give 'em sumfin to be skeered of!
I am not afraid of many things, but a group of preschool delinquents; perish the thought!
I did remember the name of the Rental Dog I forgot: Yoko. Under my duress, how could I forget Yoko? I do hope that her Furever Family changed her name, rather be under the permanent threat that Yoko would break them up.
Scared of pups?? What the dog??
